  • One of the newest museums dedicated to the memory of those who fought in WW1. A new and fresh presentation.
  • A fascinating place. A beautiful building, giving a great insight into the First World war in the Marne. And also a great way of seeing the war from the French perspective.
  • Small and well presented, this is a good history lesson. It filled in some gaps that I had in events that started this war. And unusual for France, they have a cafe.

  • Very impressive, they had English signs aswel.
